KilnSimu is used in several industries. Though the technology of rotating drums has been available for over 100 years, it has not been replaced, but remains in active use in many of its traditional applications. The rotary drum provides an effi cient means for both heat and mass transfer in the processing of slurries and other condensed mixtures.
SimulationStore is a web portal that provides an easy access to VTT’s and its partners' Modelling and Simulation (M&S) offering.
- In these pages you can find information about the computational tools and related M&S services provided by VTT.
- By registering to the web pages you can download the installers of the computational tools and different plug-in products.
- In addition you can manage your own licenses related to these products.
- Some of the VTT’s computational tools include Simupedia features. It is also possible to publish interactive models to the SimulationStore using this functionality.
Identification of novel enzymes with specific function by conducting homology based database searches.
Modelling and simulation is a present-day way to understand and improve processes to meet the increasing efficiency, safety and environmental demands. Simulation has become an important enabling technology in decision-making, engineering and operation, covering the whole life span of a production system.
SULCA’s version 5 is new and the latest version developed at VTT. SULCA 5.0 has the highly visual and easy-to-use features for which the previous versions are well known, along with a new and improved user interface that helps the user to perform reliable and easily understandable LCAs and its’ applications. In addition, a lot of new user friendly possibilities to make evaluation and calculation efficient and clear.
BALAS® is a steady state simulation package for chemical processes with emphasis on pulp and paper. The software has been developed at Technical Research Centre of Finland over the last 20 years and several Finnish paper mills, engineering companies and equipment manufacturers currently use it.
Metabolic modeling can be an important tool in the development of microbial strains capable of high efficiency production of chemicals or proteins. At VTT we are able to reconstruct gapless metabolic networks for several related species at once using the CoReCo algorithm. To ensure the high quality of the models we created an unique database containing only atom and electron balanced reactions.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a powerful and affordable tool to enable deep understanding of and to design various industrial flow processes such as combustion in boiler furnaces, chemical reactors and other mixing processes. VTT offers a wide range of expertise in CFD modelling and simulation of combustion and other industrial processes and equipment. The development and computationally efficient implementation of models describing the relevant physical and chemical phenomena is an essential part of our research work.
SULCA software allows the user to perform Ecodesign and various kinds of Life Cycle Assessments (LCA). With SULCA, the environmental, carbon and water footprints can be calculated in a transparent and user-friendly way. Tool supports the evaluation of sustainability and environmental performance of a product,process, technology or any other system.
To gain further benefit around the use of SULCA there are various kind of services and expertise available.
To achieve most beneficial use of SULCA and services supported by it, a multidesign approach can be applied (figure below). We provide comprehensive sustainability assessment services with over 20 years of experience, and offer our customers information on their environmental impacts and overall environmental performance. Our expertise is in finding optimisation potentials of new products, industrial processes and technologies. We cover environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainability.
